Towing Vehicle Driveline Maintenance Is Important


Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

I replace my tow vehicle on average every (2) years.

 

I favor the first generation Ford F-350 PSD in a CC 2WD platform.

 

(  1995 to -1997) because they are economical to service and maintain.

 

One of the things I address is the driveline - I get it rebuilt & balanced.

 

I put my current truck into service in January and took it to my regular driveline rebuild shop.

 

They told me it was in good condition & did not need re-building.

 

On Monday I scheduled another driveline shop along my route to re-build the driveline just based on gut instinct.

 

Good thing I did - the rear u-joint was coming apart 😳
